The Model United Nations (Model UN) is an extra-curricular activity in which students typically role-play delegates to the United Nations and similar UN committees. It was developed in the 1950s as a way to give students hands-on learning in international relations, diplomacy and the United Nations. Today, over 400,000 students around the world participate in the program.
The sponsor for the THS Model UN is Michelle Crane, THS Government & Sociology Teacher.
